Star Wars Cooking
Hello, what have we here?
Why it’s the leader of cloud city, original owner of the Millennium Falcon, and a man not a system- Lando Calrissian! Who doesn’t love Lando? Out of all the action figures I have, Lando makes up the highest percentage of the population. I’ve got a lot of Landos!
He has the best capes, the coolest BFF (Lobot), and he more than redeemed himself after being forced to betray Han and Leia (BTW, do you think they all sat down and ate dinner with Vader after the trap was sprung? I wonder what space food was served…). The disguise he wore to Jabba’s palace while rescuing Han was super sneaky. Certainly not as sneaky as Leia’s, but it’s a good thing he pulled down his mask a bit, so we could tell it was him! SURPRISE SURPRISE
Despite causing a temporary setback in the rebel’s plan, and almost getting eaten by Sarlacc, he went on to lead the assault on the second Death Star, and fired the shot that destroyed it. It’s hard to stay mad at Lando for long! So let’s all swish our capes, make a bad deal, and sit down to enjoy a nice post-betrayal meal in his honor.
Oh! And Ps -I’m counting down the days until I get to see him wear a big fur coat in SOLO!
